Stalin's core team of ministers tussles for control following the Russian leader's stroke in 1953.
A bust of Stalin is cut open on an operating table, leading to an elaborate animated depiction of Czech history from 1948 (the Communist takeover) to 1989 (the Velvet Revolution). Some knowledge of the subject is essential in order to understand the film, which is entirely visual.
The noisy commemoration, celebrated by the Germans in 1993, reached a peak. It was only a question of reconciliation between the adversaries of yesterday and reciprocal pardon. Very laudable intentions which perhaps conceal a memory problem. And if, to too much want to turn the page, the Germans did not come to lose their memories? If history, covered by noise, became mute? If the faults were changed into "details"? The grandchildren of the combatants react in front of the camera to the evocation of these questions and to the spectacle of the vast market of commemorations.
